What is Sous Vide?
Sous vide (pronounced soo-veed) is French for "Under Vacuum" and a culinary technique in which food is first vacuum sealed then immersed in a sous-vide water bath and cooked at very precise and consistent low temperature. The cooking time is longer than other methods for the same food, but the cooking temperature is much lower. This low temperature cooking produces remarkable and unique results. Sous vide cooking was first developed in the mid 1970s by chef Georges Pralus for the internationally renowned, Michelin three star restaurant "Trois Gros", in Roanne, France. Sous vide cooking preserves the food nutrients without destroying the food texture, it maintains food moisture and eliminates food shrinkage, it also accentuates food taste and flavour . In addition to all these benefits, sous vide cooking allows the restaurant chef to achieve perfect levels of doneness every time. With sous vide cooking method it is impossible to over-cook food and better still, once the food is cooked you can hold it at the right temperature without dehydrating or burning it.
Sous vide is very different to all other cooking techniques. It is this unique way of water bath cooking that produces exact scalable results. No other cooking method can produce such outstanding tastes and textures. One of the reasons sous vide cooking has become very popular these days is because it represents a unique way of cooking where creativity and experimentation can flourish. Sous vide allows you to modify old recipes and create outstanding new creations that are not possible with any other cooking methods.
